Hybrid lightweight solutions, which could be a combination of materials or production technologies, become more and more important within the field of lightweight design. Examples for hybrid solutions are parts made with metal-plastic combinations or new, hybrid joining technologies.

The laser as a tool open up new possibilities to realize new design ideas and concepts. Within the speech examples from customer and research projects are presented, showing the possibilities of joining metal and plastic and technologies, to produce lightweight steel parts with standard machine tools.
